Apple MacBook Pro 15 (Late 2016, 2.6 GHz i7) Notebook Review

 

Better by a Touch? Apple slims down the MacBook Pro 15 quite radically and reduces the weight to around 1.8 kg with a thickness of just 16 millimeters. The professional notebook, which even gained customers from the 17-inch Pro in the past, is now even...

excellent chassis ; very good display ; huge trackpad with great precision ; quiet and good cooling ; high WLAN transfer rates ; good speakers

neither USB-A nor HDMI-out ; defective speakers due to BootCamp ; 2.4 GHz WLAN issue with attached USB-C device ; fans are (slightly) audible while idling ; very expensive – especially the upgrades

The new Apple MacBook Pro 15 builds on the advantages of the predecessor and is one of the best devices you can buy right now in some respects. This definitely includes the excellent chassis, where the diet did not affect the quality or the stability....

Apple MacBook Pro (15-Inch, 2016) Review and Ratings

 

Apple's new big-screen Pro impresses with its snazzy Touch Bar and slimmer, super-solid design. It's a good balance of performance and portability. Just know: You'll need dongles, and the keyboard is an acquired taste.

Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2016) review

 

Glass half full of promise

Luminous display ; Innovative Touch Bar ; Four USB-C ports ; Loud and clear speakers

Touch Bar not fully-realized ; Trackpad feels too big

While Apple's brighter and bolder 15-inch MacBook brings immediate benefits the second you turn it on, it has its quirks and feels like a laptop that will become much more useful down the line.

Review: Apple MacBook Pro (Late 2016)

 

The new generation of MacBook Pros feel like the very distillation of Apple's design ideals. Thin, light, and powerful hardware that's designed to dominate in content creation, but it does so at the expense of some personality.

Still, it is hard to deny the great new design, the gorgeous new Retina Displays, the super fast SSD storage, the versatile Touchbar, lighter form factor, vastly improved speakers and ability to charge the device from any of the four ports are all...
